  • Good distortion pedal for fist-pumping classic chugging metal?

    Hey, I'm looking at getting a fat stat and dropping some high output passives in there and getting a nice classic metal chug. I want a clear, harmonic, sharp attack with a fair amount of girth to the sound.

    Classic metal along the lines of Iced Earth (ignore the stupid video, listen to the triplet chug that comes in after the singing, the tone is beautiful g )

    or Iron Savior (the intro riff to Time will Tell)

    I believe most of the stuff that I'm after is done with Marshalls. Would a Jekyll & Hyde pedal be able to suffice? Possibly the Boss dual OD pedal?

    EDIT : Also, any recommendations for pickups? I want to try out DiMarzios; Super Distortions good for what I'm looking to do?

          I second the grunge pedal. very tight sound you get there. for pretty cheap.
          65$canuck, ~50$ or so US.

            Jekyll & Hyde is a great pedal, but might not be metally enough for you. If you can pick up a zoom tri metal off ebay, that would certainly do the trick.
            For trade: I have about 15 feet of industrial velcro, I need one set of George L .155 right angle ends and two sets of George L rubber cable caps.
